This career combines mathematics, pedagogy and computing. Topics such as geometry, algebra, analysis and statistics are covered, all applied to the appropriate use of technologies in the processes of teaching and learning mathematics.

Until now, teaching in Costa Rica, and in particular the teaching of mathematics, has not taken advantage of technological advances to improve its practices, and this career is offered by the TEC to remedy this situation.


The bachelor’s degree has been recognized by the National System of Accreditation of Higher Education (Sinaes) since October 2008, which has strengthened the quality of the career.
